    strange ant behaviour

    Been wondering what the ant is doing...making a short and erratic knock on the pitcher?

    #maximise the volume to hear clearly.

    With some species that is a danger/alarm signal. Perhaps it is responding to the alarm pheromones of another ant trapped in the pitcher?

    That's what it looks like since it's stinging the pitcher.
